A big shout out and thank you!!!!!

Just when I think we've run out of face masks to give out, a kind soul adds more to the basket. A big shout out to the lovely people anonymously donating their home-made re-usable face masks to the basket at Marrar Woorn. We have distributed over 60 masks in the last week, with many of them made by the sewers from the Apollo Bay Remakery.

If anyone you know needs some assistance obtaining a mask, there are a couple left in the basket at the front door of Marrar Woorn, 6 Pengilley Ave, Apollo Bay (next to the Gym).
